Breastfeeding your child is the first way as humans we nourished our children. Human nature to turn to your child when they are hungry and crying to feed them and calm them. Since the introduction of the formula, it gave women a sense of freedom and was also created to help children who were malnourished and needed more. Bottle feeding was very expensive and became a symbol for wealth, and privilege. Breastfeeding became a “primitive act” only done by the poor.
